California needs this guy.

I fear we will get another do-gooder as governor. Meg Whitman could probably do it but politics is not the same as business. Harry Truman cracked that he felt sorry for Eisenhower after Ike had been elected in 1952. Truman said, “Poor Ike. He thinks that he will say ‘do this’ and somebody will actually do it. He has no idea about politics.” In fact, Ike was a much better president than he has been given credit for. He made it look too easy.

Gov Christie calls S-L columnist thin-skinned for inquiring about his 'confrontational tone'

Now, we have another model. I wish we had him here.

    This man should be emulated by all pols. He is direct, doesn’t sugar-coat, manipulate or try to make you define what is, is. At that the end of the day, that’s what the public wants, a straightshooter, for better or worse. Unfortunately, it’s not what the parties nor the MSM want. With honesty this unquestionable, what’s left to manipulate and shape into one’s own image?

  2. Hey… I was wrong about Christie.

    When he was running I figured he was just another RINO establishment bozo who would memorize the proper campaign soundbites but if elected fall back on politics as usual.

    Man was I wrong…

    And you know what? I love being wrong…!

    Christie sure as hell seems to be the real deal. God bless him! Let’s hope he’s able to effect real change over the course of his term.

    New Jersey’s is an extremely powerful governorship. As long as Christie is in it for the long haul (unlike that putz in California whose name I won’t sully this blog with) and the People of the state support him by adding to conservative legislative strength come November… Christie could well succeed where others have failed.
